The new stadium is located in the Bronx and carries the same name. But Mickey, Babe, Thurman, Catfish, the Iron Horse, JFK, Pope John and President Mandela never set eyes on it. The one they visited was viewed by the Yankees as a tear-down.
No big thing here, keep moving, everybody, there's nothing to see, I'm not whining, I'm just saying... as the Yankees take their self-congratulatory lap in the glow of Mandela's memorials...
Next summer, when they celebrate Mandela's historic visit with a marker, it won't represent a place he actually visited. And if the Yankees care so much about that legacy stuff - well - I guess they didn't in 2005, eh?
